§19-9-14. Establishment of special quarantine.
The commissioner or his authorized agent shall have the
power to establish and maintain a special quarantine, whenever
any domestic animal shall be affected with or exposed to any
communicable disease, or whenever he deems it necessary to have
any animal examined or tested. When a special quarantine is
established, the commissioner, or his agent, shall post on the
building, structure, pen, coop, car, vessel, vehicle, field, or
enclosure wherein the animal or animals quarantined are confined
or contained, a notice declaring the quarantine and containing a
description of the animal or animals and of the premises where
quarantined. Such quarantine may continue for such time as the
commissioner, or his agent, may deem advisable.
